Ferdinand Magellan

Ferdinand Magellan was a Portuguese explorer who in 1522 became the first man to circumnavigate the globe. Let me ask you, though, how do you know that’s true? Were you there? Have you seen pictures or video tape? No. His incredible feat was written down by eyewitnesses who saw it firsthand and recorded it, preserving it for future generations and, as far as I know, no one questions what Magellan accomplished. Events written down by eyewitnesses. People who saw firsthand what was said and done and recorded it, preserving it for future generations. Gosh, I know a book like that too, don’t you? Isn’t it fascinating, though, how so many people (even some so-called “Christians”) are quick to doubt the facts recorded by eyewitnesses in the Bible but no one questions Magellan was the first man to sail around the world? Interesting.
